Smartest thing I've ever heard on the subject, and if you read up on what bigwigs say about the Internet, they pretty much say the exact same
This is why there is a push to regulate the Internet and shut down Bitcoins, and the like. Imagine if Jesse Ventura was a government-approved
conspiracy theorist and this website was government-approved, that is basically what life was like in the early 90's and 80's.
But A.T.S. and Jesse Ventura mean something independent of any power plays because they are rogue elements, if you will, they are independent,
self-motivated leaders in the Information Age of decentralization.
I feel like that is a real picture of Ventura on the right, not one that was approved by various multi-media and government agencies, but by him.
I have a voice on this site and it is because I have access to information and a neutral platform on which to speak, as well as a mind to process that
information. Any one of those - access to information, a neutral platform - were not present before the Internet.
With the Internet, the content of what someone says rises to the top based on how true and accurate and beneficial it is. Who that person is could
remain anonymous and even irrelevant the whole time. This means that you get the best stuff at the top, not the most popular person, and more than
likely, everyone contributed a piece or two.
